Having problems with your Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

The wand is hard to pull up

\015 We are having a hard time pulling the wand up\015

Answers :

The wand on this machine get lots of tiny dirt and fine dust caught in the sliding tube that fits in the hose. You will need to take the hose at its cuff end where it meets the wand and press the two tabs to release the wand out, then take some spay cleaner of any kind and wipe down the wand tube. This should make it easy to slide in and out of the hose. Now just put it back together.

Telescopic wand My wife's Electrolux Oxygen has a telescoping wand that expanded and contracted. All one had to do was slide a button and the lower tube slid inside the larger upper tube. Now the button no longer moves whatever was inside to allow the expansion/contraction to happen. How do I fix this situation? The wand assembly hardly seems to be made with repairs in mind. This method of manufacturing is annoying. Thanks, Eric

I have the Dyson Animal and I just bought it in January and my hose does not work. Mine you pull the hard part out and once it reaches the end it will click off of the top of the vacuum. I cannot pull it out. It is stuck.

My daughter pulled to hard on the ceiling fan pulling out the chain. i have taken it off and apart, nothing appears to be broken but im trying to figure out how to put it together so it retracks, i assume it has something to do with the tension of the small spring inside of it, but not sure how to put it back together im wondering if there is a internal diagram of this ???

The power cord is stuck part way out - it seems to have slipped over the edge of the reel inside the machine, so it won't pull out and it won't retract. Pulling hard does no good.

Can't find info for hoover steam vac spin scrub model # F5905900 on Hoover website, doesn't show that model number at all...looking for mesh (kind of cone/cylinder shape) that goes in dirty water tank (I think) and also the tool (wand) that slides into front to clean it out. It doesn't pull all the water up very well and the filter has been missing for some time. I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not. As far as the wand tool goes, I have taken the cover off at this point and


The cleanout tool is part # 43514001. The filter is # 90001398. Be sure to leave a 1/2 inch gap between the top of the filter and the bottom of the lid. If you need a manual, try model F5914-900 0r F5912-900 on Hoover.com ... Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum

Poor Suction Heya! So I just picked up a used Dyson, but when I vacuum with it, the suction is pretty weak and it spits all kinds of stuff out the back and into my feet. When I pull the hose I have good suction, but in regular mode it hardly picks up anything. The brushes are spinning, and it eventually will clean an area if I go over it again and again. Maybe a clog somewhere? Please tell me that Dysons have better suction than my $50 Dirt Devil! Thanks!


I recently bought a second hand Dyson DC07. Its suction was poor. I removed all the un-clipable pipe bits and to remove any blockage but it all looked clear. The Final Sponge and hepper filter did have a lot of dust in it and the rotating brush was f ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
